Start off with plain white chipboard thickers.
Just go over them evenly with your inkpad. I used Colorbox cat’s eye because it’s my favorite. You can color it all over or in blotches, whatever you want to do. I covered mine all over. Here is a pic in the process of covering them with the ink.
Here is a close up of the finished letters on my page. The close-up flash picked up some white specks, but you can’t see those in real life looking at them.
And, here is the whole finished page. I did this page for my Recipe Challenge over at FH2S. The recipe I made was a challenge to myself as well, but I was pleased with the overall page…head on over there and check out the recipe :)
Anyway, back to the thickers…I was very pleased with how well they colored!
